Tugaimah Wins Grand Final OUTLASTS BENALLA Better condition told its tale in the grand final match1" between Tungamah and Benalla played at St. James leat Saturday. Though there wee a fairly strong breeze blowing at the start of, the geme, it had faded out before the final quarter, and the ' very. large crowd, though perhaps not witnessing as fine a match as that played be tween the same teams a fortnight, ago, saw a very well contested game? in which the fast pace set in the earlier quarters told againastm;t me of the players in the lest terms, and combined with, the hard ground,. would have been a severe test for teams better conditioned and trained than either of -the participants. The game was played for'the most part in 'good spirit with plenty of hard bumps, but was occasionally' marred by the unnecessary use of the elbow'by'a few of themen. McLean was the recipient of several of theoe knocks, and they rather impaired his usual high class game; whilst Gillett appeared -to rece...

No-Licence means no liquor retail licences, but IT DOES NOT MEAN NO LIQUOR Don't 'be bluffed by the boastful "£30,000,000" liquor trade monopoly into voting "NO" to suit their own ends.

TIHE KITCHEN GARDEN. The sowing of most ofi.the. most important crops should now have been made, and weather conditions have favored sowing operations, and gratifying iresults should follow, provided care is taken to combat the depredations of the many undesir ablcs:usually found' in gardens in the form of insect and other pests, and extra labor spent in their ex termination will be well repaid in better produce. Give a look over Strawberiy beds and remove all weeds, and every trace of rubbiph, leaving the beds perfectly clean, and' if any leaves are spotted or show.signs of decay they should'be removed, thereby minimising risk :of attack from fungoid 'diseases which will certainly appear if:'decaying matter is left around the plants. Parsnips should be "sown now :ii generous quantity as this vegetable is slow to germinate, but the in creasing warmth in the soil and natural moisture make :conditions ideal' 'for securing rapid and satis factory germination.-The soil should be deep an...

THE GARDEN A FEW GOOD PLANTS REVIEWED. The' beginning of spring is a very good time to plant anything of a semi-tender nature which, will . dc quite well in Victoria when they become established, but are some times hard to start.as,young.plants; that is. to say if'they'?are planted: in the autumn, or winter, a sharp frost is liable to cut the young and ten der shoots back severely and it may quite kill them, but' when sufficient wood becomes hardened- they. will carry through- quite, well. . = Amongst such susbjects ar. in cluded the BOUGAINVILLEAS, es pecially ' those of the newer types, chief amongst. which :are: Thurley's Special, a bright pink' color; Mrs Butt, cherry red;' and Orange King, light' orange flame..: Planted now, these Bougainvilleas will grow rap idly; and during the summer 'enough wood will become sufficiently mat ured to .carry them -through` the winter,". when they will 'become firmly established.
